Inter Miami did the same exact thing; they had the opportunity to have a completely unique color to the league - pink - and made it nothing but a small accent color and went with black and white uniforms.I still think it's a massive mistake to relegate our most unique color to a BP/ST only jersey.
I believe my initial reaction was I didn’t like them either, mainly because it was so plain. Still don’t like the lack of a wordmark or shoulder logo which it should have on it anyway but once I saw them in daylight I became a fan. The player names and numbers look really nice.Someone ban this guy
My issue with that and I’m getting nerdy here about why theres a difference to me. These jerseys have a retail version and authentic version. The authentic version retails for the same price as the game jerseys. Everything official I have seen such as MLB shop and other retail sources list this jersey as an Alternate and not BP.Everyone says they're too plain but that's ignoring the fact that they were created to be for BP from the beginning so they were always meant to be more plain than a regular game jersey.
As a BP jersey, they're perfect.
You're over thinking this.My issue with that and I’m getting nerdy here about why theres a difference to me. These jerseys have a retail version and authentic version.

If you look at the history of MLB Bp jerseys in modern times, the league has a standardized version that all teams adhere to and they seem to rotate every three years or so. The current version At least until 2019 is the 3/4 zip which, i concede, The marlins don’t seem to have at the moment that I can find. I believe we had one in the old logo. I dont remember seeing anything with the Nike takeover about BP jerseys so maybe they did away with the BP Style as a whole, doubtful since they like money,
But to me the blue jersey was originally marketed as an alternate and priced as an alternate which is why I’d say it’s plain. I tried to go back through and find a press release to see what they initial said but can’t seem to find it.
Might be.You're over thinking this.
The Marlins have always said it was only for BP, they've never said it was a regular game alternate.
You can't make much of what the shops list it as because that's not official from the team. For example I've seen the Yankees navy BP jersey listed as a game alternate online too but there's no way the Yankees ever designated it as a game alternate. Also the 2012 Marlins orange cap was listed on the MLB shop as the road cap and that was never the case.
